Tomato Conundrum

I’ve been neglecting the blog, but not the garden! There’s some sort of tomato bacteria in the area this year which makes all the tomato plants look pretty sad (yellow and spindly). But I resisted the urge to over-water or pull everything up, and it’s paid off. The Red Cherry tomatoes, though tiny, have been really sweet, delicious, and prolific. And the heirloom has decided to put out a ton of fruit all of a sudden. We had 3 early in the season and then nothing for weeks… but now we have 5 big tomatoes in the making! So though the plants don’t look their best, the fruit is still great.
